Artist Statement

Created as a cut linoleum print on paper, With the Compliments of the Season strikes a balance between bold and playful. A beaming lemon-yellow contrasts deeply with heavy black lines that pop to the foreground. Though dark and thickly printed, the black stems feel delicate. The curvy lettering and playful ruffles of the round blossoms give the image a light buoyancy accented by an array of freshly fluffed foliage. Abstract and superbly simple, Saÿen’s piece is an ode to the gift of spring.

Why We Love It

Though undated, With the Compliments of the Season was likely created around 1914-1916, when Saÿen returned to Philadelphia and became heavily involved with the emerging modern art movement in the United States. With him he brought a distinct Fauvist style, influenced by the strident colors and bold brushwork of Post-Impressionist artists.

During the Spanish-American War, Saÿen ran the medical x-ray laboratory until being discharged after contracting typhoid fever in 1898.
